Crossing the border for Prescriptions
Just wondering the do's and don'ts about going outside the country (USA) to get prescriptions.
I have a very sick father that requires alot of high $$ RX's...He hit the dounut hole (Part D) in July and the rest of the year will be straight out of the pocket expenses.
I, for one would rather keep my $$ in the US, but paying about 1/3 of the full cost for the RX's in Canada is a far cry cheaper than buying local....And this is a generic drug...And it is not on the Walmart's discount list either......
Just wondering if others have inherited the same issue that I have...I am at that point of going across the border for cheaper prescriptions.
Any positive thought's are greatly appreciated..

if your Dad has a script, i wouldn't think twice about ordering from a canadian pharmacy......i've done it before.
the FDA/healthcare system sucks ass in this country (imo)....
I was prescribed a med here,and walgreens wanted $80 to fill....i got the same exact medication(ingrediants,levels,ect) for $40 shipped to my door from Canada in 4 days!!!
this country needs to build a better mouse trap as far as health care goes
Best wishes to your situation.

I got a fungus on my toenail a few months ago...
went to my doctor and he gave me a prescription, he said
if you go to Walgreens this will cost you $200.00, but if you go to
Wal-Mart you can get it for $4.00... he was right!
What does that tell you about prescription drug costs in America?

when I had an ear infection I went to the doctor and she gave me a prescription and said that if I went to Meijers (kind of a local name) it would be free, and it was

I would love to find that better trap...As far as the Part D...It Sux's when you hit Stage 3 (The Dounut Hole)....You pay 100% of all the meds and it is costly....
I got a response from the Candian on line drug company....Now, I want to check them out and make sure they are legit...They are based out of Winnipeg...
Its sad when a person cannot afford a gereric drug....I will say that Walmart was the highest in cost.....That is really sad...I even asked if I were to buy a 60-90 supply would it be cheaper......Just add the 30 day cost X 2 or 3 month's supply....NO Discount

Iam very sorry for your situation man! This is one of the areas (script drugs) where we need to crack down on. Shame that you can go outside the USA in most cases and get them cheaper! Thank God for Walmart tho because if they werent there then what.
